Khulna Titans sign Ireland batsman Paul Stirling ahead of the 2019 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League, starting January 5, 2019. Stirling will become the second Ireland player - after Niall O'Brien - to play for the Titans.
Stirling expressed his delight at the interest in his signature from the Titans and the opportunity to work with their coach.
"I was delighted to hear that the Khulna Titans were interested in me and jumped at the opportunity. Apart from being a great tournament to be part of, I'm looking forward to the opportunity of working with coach Mahela Jayawardene - one of the greatest Sri Lankan batsman of the last 20 years," Stirling said.
"The squad has made the playoffs for two years running, and features a range of world-class players that I've played alongside or against over the last 10 years - including Dawid Malan who I play under at Middlesex," he added.
Stirling recently got a taste of the league cricket in Sharjah where he played in the T10 as well as Everest Premier League in Nepal.
"The rise of T20 tournaments around the world has really added a new dimension to the international cricket circuit. The chance to play and train with - and learn from - some of the best in our sport is an experience I do not take lightly, and off the cricket field, you get a little bit of an insight into different cultures.
"The Nepalese experience, that I've just returned from, was eye-opening. To see such enthusiasm for cricket in a nation that is not typically top of mind in our sport is encouraging for cricket's future," Stirling said.
